PAC Test – Portable Appliance Check
Portable Appliance Checking is a now redundant term, which was replaced long ago by Portable Appliance Testing, which is now commonly referred to as PAT Testing.

More information about the PAC test
Portable appliance checking is carried out on electrical equipment of up to 230 volts, that is used in the workplace. When the term was used it was predominantly for equipment of class 1 construction used in hazardous environments, and or handheld where there was a high risk of damage occurring, and therefore greater risk of the user suffering an electric shock.
Nowadays the PAC test comes under the better known process of PAT testing or inspection and testing of electrical equipment to give it its full name.
